partial wakeups and crash
Authored by: thwaite on Feb 22, '02 01:20:15PM

Hi all,

Wake550 does its part fine, but not every Mac responds well. My DP800 hears the magic packet,
cranks up its fan and hard disk ... then freezes and has to be rebooted. Any ideas?

When manually prodded this G4 quicksilver normally wakes from sleep pretty well,
although until I shuffled its RAM I was an
unhappy participant in the thread on Apple's support board (totalling 100+msgs) discussing the
widespread difficulties some G4's have waking up reliably. In OS9 that's often due to a weird
extension but there's no explanation yet for OSX.

Thanks - Ron
